and choose all of your unelectable candidates wing of the party. that is karl rove. here's how rove explained his election experience. >> i was involved in a group called american crossroads. it's the worst volunteer job i've had in my life. i was in charge of raising money. we raised $324 million, and i got sick and tired of spending money in races where the moderates and the conservatives had gone at each other and made victory impossible. >> rove has said he wants to reorient crossroads and some reporting says he's going to do that by beginning to intervene in primaries where jim demint-like strategies are being carried out. in fact, already even though it has been less than a month since the election, crossroads is coming to the defense of shelley moore capito, thinking of challenging rockefeller in 2014. some have been attacking her as not conservative enough for the seat. crossroads president steven law told politico, quote, it is distasteful to see washington politicos clubbing republican candidates right out of the gate, especially ones with the guts to challenge an entrenched incumbe

in terms of getting the economy back on track. >> that is the potential next stance. carl rove karl rove is going to stay in this game. he's got five different radio ads, each putting pressure on specific senators in those states to reach what cross rows calls a balanced solution to the nation's debt. this one is airing in north carolina. take a listen. >> balanced, comprehensive and good for our economy, not like president obama's one sided plan. both parties helped create the mess in washington. both parties should work together to clean it up. >> both parties created the mess, both sides should clean it up. is this the more conservatives among the gop getting ready to put the blame on democrats if the deal doesn't get done? >> well, yes, that would be one way to put it. i'm interested that karl rove says that the republicans seem to have a balanced plan. actually president obama is putting -- has been putting forward a balanced plan, spending and revenue increases for a long time. he's also done something very smart, which is put the republican tons defensive, unlike the beginning in
like a plot out of a tom clancy cold war novel. a rove navy sailor is suspected of telling top-secret submarine tracking technology to the russians. nbc affiliate reporter andy fox with wavy has this story. >> reporter: robert hoffman appeared in court wearing a t-shirt with a rooster on it with the words "born to fight," in reference to cock fighting. mr. hoffman, did you try to sell government secrets? just a big smirky smile from hoffman, who retired a year ago and is trained as a navy cryptologic technician. he is able to find submarines using sophisticated direction-finding technology. the indictment reads hoffman had access to top-secret information which could cause exceptionally grave damage to national security. on october 21st, hoffman is accused of delivering secret information to people he believed to be officials with the russian federation on how to track u.s. submarines using the technology he learned on the job working for the navy. the information included the technology and procedures required to find the subs. hoffman delivered that information to fbi agents
, indeed. one story people are talking about, he's back. he's back. we reported that karl rove and dick morris had been benched at fox news. >> bill: that didn't take long, did it? >> yesterday karl rove turned up again on special report with bret baier. so all of these reports about him being benched may or may not be true. >> bill: what was it? a week? yeah maybe. >> wasn't that long. >> bill: i guess dick morris will be back on sean hannity tonight. >> god help us if he does show back up but yeah. clearly taking them off the bench. >> bill: as long as you're willing to bash barack obama you'll have a home on fox. no doubt about it. so amanda, this is -- this is not going to end. even if rick schneider signs this bill today. >> no. >> bill: this is going to be an on-going battle. >> it will keep going. you will see attempts to repeal the bill. whether passing new legislation attempts perhaps to recall the legislators who voted for it. there will be the elections in 2014. i think it has woken labo
rove? >> despite what we're telling you, it's over. romney lost. >> i guess it's time i explain, the good people, the upcoming fiscal cliff. >> the economy is the car and rich sman a driver. don't give the driver many. they will drive you over a cliff. just common sense. >> eric: not exactly. the only way to save the republic is for us to let the president go off the fiscal cliff. taxes will go up. but mandatory spending cuts get enacted. that seems to be the only way dems will cut a dime. let's save the place for the kids. do you agree? >> greg: i do. >> bob: i think you're crazy. >> greg: funny that bob and i agree but for different reasons. fiscal cliff is a horrible med fore. i means the high grade leftism. what you get are massive cuts in defense. and higher taxes. that means the government expands without improving the one thing that works. so you are feeding obese fat man called the government who still isn't doing any good. what they are doing is blackmailing us. president obama is blackmailing saying if you don't do this, if you don't raise taxes on 2%, this is what wil
economy is roving as a result of the auto industry recovering, and all the work that president obama has done. at a time when our economy is coming back. instead of bringing people together, he is driving a wedge between people. this is energizing people. it's an emotional issue. and i believe that people are going to turn out and make sure that their voices are heard. in fact we expect to see that tomorrow on the grounds of the state capitol when thousands of people have their voice heard. i just hope the people inside the capitol actually listen. >> cindy, who benefits from right-to-work legislation? >> no one benefits from right-to-work legislation. we know, and you said earlier that it means lower wages. it means less jobs. the only ones that think they're going to benefit are outside groups like alec and the koch brothers. they think they're going to break unions, that they're going to break communities so there is more for corporate ceos. what we're going to show them is the opposite. this is going to inspire us and galvanize us. the only way you're going to recreate michigan or an
and karl rove is doing a series of ads. do you think that they can be effective or do they cancel each other out. >> well, we have remained in campaign mode since the election because we think the eaches involved in the deficit negotiation are extremely important to middle-income americans. we're trying to break through the fog of all of the political ads that have been done during this campaign season by doing something a little more, shall i say, tongue in cheek. so i think our ad is going to ask cut through that fog. i would say we're going to be outspent ten to one by the other side, maybe 20 to one. but we're in the game here. we have major mobl lilization gg on in the states. the ads are just a piece of that. >> let me ask you about entitlements. there's going to be conversations going on. we don't know what is going on in that room between speaker boehner and president obama. but at some point that conversation about medicare and medicaid is going to happen and what concerns you the most and are there any adjustments that can be made given where the finances are that you would f

. >> steve: yes. i think carl rove is offering a dinner for four which would be interesting. there will be a big concert. billy joe and paul mccartney and banding together in the garden. they put tickets on sale and sold out within minutes and now scalpers out there pocketing thousands of dollars. and the money should go to sandy victims and instead people who are lucky enough to get in on the tickets they are going to be able to make a lot of dough on the backs of the victims. >> i am not sure what you would do about that. if someone said to me you want to go to the concert and the ticket was $150 and you paid $300 from a scalper. but if you paid a $1,000. we need to figure out somebody in the governor's office to call and report it, to. if they make a small margin that is fine. but hundred for a ticket and you are sold a thousand or 2000 something has to do. >> brian: if you buy it from us. any money over the face value goes to the robinson foundation. >> steve: the new york daily news and somebody telling tickets for $60,000. that money would go in theirr pocket. >> you c
not favor it and it can be used politically. karl rove called it the gift that keeps on giving. for many years, it did. one thing the conservatives did not count on are two things. one, most families have a gay son or daughter they love or a cousin or uncle they cherish. the other thing, thomas, is at the end of the day, they didn't anticipate that conservatives themselves would come to see this as a conservative issue. >> sure, it's a traditional value. >> absolutely. >> when you have vehicle dick cheney who has a daughter who wanted to get married and start a family. just not from individuals on the right. we have seen elizabeth now. we have nine states in washington d.c. area having legalized marriage equality. >> right. >> the initial issue with the court taking this issue up was met with relief by certain people, certain marriage equality. some worry having the court involved could stall the progress. do you think there's the possible likelihood of that? >> no. i mean, i think there's always a likelihood, but i think the u.s. supreme court has ended up time and time again in our his
-- dan concludes his column this way -- right below that is karl rove's weekly column in the wall street journal. "what obama is really bargaining for" is the headline. that caller of this morning in the wall street journal. this is gary in ohio on our independent line. caller: good morning. i feel that the united states is divided. just like your show, you have a republican member, democratic member, independents number. as long as we can -- they can divide us into 3 or four groups, they are going to do with a one- two. just like at the conventions for both parties, how on the screen they read off of, they took a vote and had it scripted on the screen what was going to happen. they already had the answer on the screen. you get all this stuff out of d.c. and no one has said a word for six months about libel. -- libor. guys th these guys have been setting the bank rates 40 years. nobody gets in trouble or goes to jail. there is no law in washington. they are running the guns. it's up about gunrunning. there is as much dope down there as there is gunrunning. host: thank you for calling. fr
about cutting spending before coming to us for more money. gregg: you know what, doug? karl rove wrote an op-ed in "the wall street journal" which he basically says, the president think it is all about him. the more mr. obama makes everything about him, the more stubborn he is likely to be when flexibility would be better. success requires adjustments, including a greater willingness to compromise and seek common ground with his opposition. fair point? >> oh, i think it is a fair point. i think it is a fair point on both sides. we had a framework that did what terry described. it was called bowles-simpson. the president didn't support it. paul ryan didn't support it. it didn't have the kind of bipartisan consensus we needed. gotten us $4 in spending cuts for one dollar in revenue increase. bottom line we lack common purpose as a nation. both parties i believe are to be blamed. gregg, as we go to the end of the year and the christmas season i would hope we would have a common purpose, put partisanship aside and say how do we put the nation first? sadly, no one is doing that. gregg: it i
during the same period of time that we know karl rove was contacting federal prosecutors and pushing them towards politically advantageous prosecutions. the two years later that investigation led to an indictment of seigleman on a medicaid fraud charge that was such a terrible case the judge threw it out for lack of evidence before a single witness had a chance to testify. then, in 2005, the u.s. attorney's office indicted seigleman again, this time on rico charges for allegedly giving a state position to a donor in exchange to donations to a campaign the governor was running, not his own, to state lottery to better fund the state's schools. the national prosecutor managing that case, was u.s. attorney allow are can necanary. and get this, the campaign manager for the republican governor bob riley who seigleman had almost defeated in 2002 and who had seigleman had vowed to run against in 2006. that's right. the u.s. prosecuting attorney managing the case was married to the man managing the case of seigleman's opponent. the star witness for the prosecution who came he had saw the governor
